Friday weigh in thread (suns out guns out challenge 8/30/24)

If I ever found myself at this happy point, I’d use the South Beach diet Phase II guidelines, even if I weren’t “doing” South Beach. Add one category of food you had stopped eating in small amounts, track your weight and waistline for a week or two, add another category, rinse and repeat. It’s one way of avoiding the “Yay, I get to eat again!” trap.

Or slightly increase amounts of one type of food, if you had just decreased amounts across the board.

Yes, gradually adding calories or “reverse dieting,” is a good way to go about it.

4/19: 226
4/26: 225
5/10: 223.2, not sure I trust it. I haven't been able to work out in a couple weeks so its probably more lost muscle mass than anything.

5/17: 221.8, again still not able to work out, so I am pretty sure its just muscle mass going away.

I took a two week diet break because I had a trip and a birthday. I wasn’t tracking my food closely for 2 weeks and still lost a pound! I also went down another belt loop. I’m now planning on gradually increasing my calories by about 100 per week until I’m back at maintenance.

Working on this myself. Last time I lost weight my gym closed due to covid. I recently bought a power cage, bench, barbell, bumper plates, and adjustable dumbbells so no gym closures can mess me up anymore.
I go to a gym, but would like to upgrade my garage gym as well. I have a bench, but only dumbbells. Would like a cage as well
